Phoenix area dentist explains the dental implant process

Dental Implants from Phoenix AZ Dentist

Phoenix area patients considering treatments for missing teeth often speak to their dental professionals about long-term options such as a dental implant and the process of placement.
 
Dental implants are one of the most popular solutions for patients who are considering replacement of their natural teeth.

They are:

  • A great value
  • Permanent
  • Biocompatible
  • Natural-looking
  • Best for restoring smiles

Dental implants are titanium posts that act as a foundation for a restoration such as a crown, bridge, or denture. The posts act as a replacement for the natural tooth root. They provide the strength and stability needed to keep other restorations in place and restore the efficiency of eating and speaking. Dental implants are also known for lasting a lifetime with proper care and attention.
 
Dr. Sameet Koppikar works with patients to find out if they are right for them.

Are you a candidate for implants?

Candidacy for dental implants is determined during an evaluation by Dr. Sameet Koppikar. Dental implants require enough bone structure to ensure the implant can be successfully placed. A dentist can take x-rays to look at the bone of the jaw and find if patients are appropriate for this method of tooth replacement. Some patients may not be candidates and will need to consider alternatives such as bridges or dentures.

The process

Dental implants are placed during oral surgery. A hole is made in the jaw and then the implant is inserted. There is extensive planning that goes into the placement, as the dentist needs to ensure the implant is not interfering with the sinuses or other sensitive areas that could affect the results.
